Planning and Personal Training

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      3 comments

I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS ...this is the chant I have on repeat right now. THE GOAL: Lose 30 lbs by February (my birthday trip to San Diego, where there will be a swimsuit) That is roughly 15 weeks from now. 2 l... Read more

Weird depression day

Monday, August 04, 2014      5 comments

I had one of those scary days yesterday that reminds me where I've been and where I do not want to be ever again. I just felt... blah. Emotionless. Numb. My boyfriend asked me 57 times what was wrong, did I want a root beer, did I want to g... Read more

Reinvigorating through planning!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014      4 comments

OK. I need a goal to work for! I am sooooo lazy right now. I can't seem to get my sleeping going, and thus my exercise is sucking, thus I am eating a bunch of crap. That said, I am still wearing my fitbit and keeping track of steps, and I have b... Read more

I will not be derailed!

Monday, July 21, 2014      8 comments

Me and sleep do not always get along. Last week we had a pretty bad falling out, and I just barely slept the entire week. Why? Heat wave? Kittens in the bed? Fan on or fan off? All of these reasons added up to a perfect storm of insomnia. A... Read more

This Dang Plateau!

Tuesday, July 15, 2014      5 comments

I'm not sure you can call it a plateau, but I'm not sure you can't. In all, I've lost over 150 lbs and also gained like 200. Which should be equally impressive! Bring on the pasta and garlic bread! But what I'm getting at, is that I should ... Read more

Beach vacation = so much walking!

Monday, July 14, 2014      4 comments

I have never walked so much in my life I don't believe. Now, granted, I did my long workout on Friday morning before we left because I didn't think I'd get enough mileage over the weekend. Boy, was I pretty wrong! My fitbit totals wer... Read more

a pic reminder - and a box of ice cream bars if I don't lose weight soon

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      6 comments

I was looking back through old blogs, and I found a before/during picture of myself at 55 lbs lost. I'm now at around 70 lbs lost: It freaks me out because I look so ... Read more

Popular Blog Trophy?! Wow!

Tuesday, July 08, 2014      3 comments

WOW! Thank you everyone! I have been on SP since 2006 and as far as I can remember, I have never, ever, had a Popular Blog Post! I feel so totally honored. The love and support I've gotten from my SP family has gotten me through some tough times... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts the timeline of how SP fixed my day

Monday, July 07, 2014      55 comments

Today was like a whirlwind of emotions. I'll just give you the timeline play by play. 8am - I'm awake. It's painful. It's already hot in my bedroom. My heart wants to go out and run, and my body does NOT. 8am - 9:45am I try to convinc... Read more

c25k week 2 - I must gush

Friday, July 04, 2014      3 comments

My friends and family are getting sick of me hearing how great I feel at the end of every workout, and I can only gush to Facebook so much before someone wants to punch me in the face. So you guys get to hear it! Today was probably the best... Read more

C25k day 3! Blocking out the bad messages.

Monday, June 30, 2014      3 comments

Oh wow I'm tired. My guy moved in with me this weekend and according to my fitbit I got over 10k steps a day. We both took Monday off, supposedly to rest, but it's 5:30pm and we're not even done for the day yet. UGH. But I keep thinking about al... Read more

hey fat girl running: we've got this!

Friday, June 27, 2014      4 comments

OK today was not as easy. First of all, it's raining. I ran anyway. When I became a runner last time, I totally did all my training on a treadmill, so this outside thing is a whole new experience. But what I learned last time is that when race t... Read more

getting back into things!

Thursday, June 26, 2014      0 comments

OK it's day 3 of being back, and I'm drinking all that freaking water I was told to drink. It's getting easier! I'm sore and tired today. I am kind of glad I didn't have to run this morning, but I might try to do a light workout tonight. I worke... Read more

The process, not the product

Wednesday, June 25, 2014      3 comments

C25K DAY 1 COMPLETE! One foot in front of the other - I'm back in! I am looking to become a runner again, even at my very very slow pace that honestly looks way more like walking than running. But one of my very wise running friends told me... Read more

Oh hello SP! I'm back at it! I'm starting a couch to 5k program tomorrow to try and get motivated to run again. I'm also loitering in SP back alleys and team corners. If you see me, ask me when the last time I ran is, or if I would like a ... Read more
